Vintage 1973 Gibson EB3 bass guitar in very good condition. Walnut finish.Very clean apart from one small area on the back of the body. (see pic)

The frets are in good shape as is the truss rod. This bass is all original other than 2 changed tuners. There is a 3rd original tuner included. The G & D strings have the original tuners, the E & A have clover style tuners. (See pic /Only 1 of the original tuners is actually missing) Missing bridge cover. Comes in the original hard case. The case has seen plenty of use but is in fully working order. All the latches work just fine.

The EB3 bass has a distinctive sound - in part due to its solid mahogany set-neck construction, and partially due to the pickups - particularly the large humbucker , in the neck position. The bass also came with a varitone switch for four distinct tones - including an incredibly bassy choked neck-pickup sound. Obviously popular with the burgeoning rock movement of the late sixties, but also a true design classic.

This bass can be collected in Hackney. If you decide to have it shipped i will make sure its packed well inside a cardboard guitar box.

THIS BASS CAN BE VIEWED ALONG WITH THE REST OF MY INVENTORY IN HACKNEY
